Plans Already Made for Saw 8?

In case anyone has been buying the line of Saw 3D being the last film in the franchise, we have some fresh copies of both Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter and Freddy's Dead with your names on it!

In a recent interview with The New York Post's PopWrap actress Betsy Russell (pictured below), who plays Jigsaw's wife, Jill, dropped some interesting news on fans ...

"Before we thought it was ending [with 'Saw 7'], the writers came up with an unbelievable idea [for 'Saw 8']," Betsy revealed to PopWrap. "It's an amazing story that I would love to see. We want to end near the top, with our integrity intact and not letting the characters die a slow death, so to speak. But I believe in my heart that someday, somehow, ['Saw 8'] will happen."

Our prediction? Unless Saw 3D explodes at the box office, Lionsgate will let the series rest for a couple of years before bringing it back. Look for the new film to open on October 29th.

Heh, "Freddy's Dead" and "The Final Chapter" were the first things that popped into my head when I read this too.

Heeey... for all intents and purposes Freddy's Dead WAS the Last Nightmare on Elm Street.

Calling Wes Craven's New Nightmare a sequel to A Nightmare On Elm Street would be like calling Shadow of the Vampire a sequel to Nosferatu.

I suppose you could count Freddy vs Jason, but I wouldn't. Not really.

Disagree; Jason Lives and The New Blood were good. That being said, TNB was just barely and I won't vehemently defend it.

How's this for a prediction - they let it rest for few years *and then reboot it*. A remake of the first Saw will be seen in our lifetimes, mark my words!
